Did you know all teas–black, green, white, oolong, pu-erh and yellow, come from the same plant?

This marvelous and resilient plant, the Camellia sinensis can also grow into trees in its native environment, China and India, where it can thrive for more than a 1000 years.

If they are all from the same plant, what makesthem different?

The way the leaves are processed after they’re harvested can differ. Various methods of processing tea, such as air-drying, steaming, heating, or withering, create these differences. Like wine, other aspects besides the way it’s processed play a major role in tea cultivation, including the region, climate, and preferences of the tea producer.
